Another Homicide In Triple Shooting

One man is dead and another two injured as a result of a triple shooting off Robinson Road on Saturday night. 

According to police, shortly before 8:00pm, three adult males were standing in front of a home on Roland Street, Ridgeland Park West, in the area of Christ The King Anglican church, when the sounds of gunshots were heard.

All three of the men were shot and transported to hospital, where one of them later succumbed to his injuries.

Police are now appealing to the public for their help in solving this shooting incident.  Police press liaison Assistant Superintendent  Shanta Knowles shared  with reporters that police “are working with surviving victims to ascertain as much information as possible”.

“It is believed that occupants of a Nissan March may be responsible for the shooting incident at Ridgeland Park, as it was seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed shortly after the shooting,” ASP Knowles said.  

Police have not officially identified the male who succumbed.  However, this Journal understands he is Omar Butler, alias Smokey. 

Police asking anyone with information about this incident to contact the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991/2, Crime Stoppers at 328-TIPS (8477) or the nearest police station. All information will be held in the strictest of confidence. Investigations are ongoing.

Just last week Acting Commissioner of Police Emerick Seymour touted that crime was trending down with the murder rate at 83 at the time.

Mr. Seymour added that the police force “hope to ensure that, that stays as low as possible for the next two weeks of the year”.

This latest homicide pushes the murder count to 87 for the year, according to the Journal records.
